    Texas Estimates Some 58K Non-citizens Voted in Elections Over the Last 22 Years

    Texas Estimates Some 58K Non-citizens Voted in Elections Over the Last 22 Years

    But remember, voter fraud isn’t real

    An evaluation conducted by the office of the Texas Secretary of State found some 95,000 non-U.S. citizens on the voter registration roles. Of those 95K, they believe more than half voted in one or more elections over the last two decades.

    From Austin local news:

    An evaluation by the Texas Secretary of State’s office discovered that about 95,000 people identified by the Texas Department of Public Safety as non-U.S. citizens have a matching voting registration record. The state claims 58,000 of those people voted in one or more state elections over 22 years.

    For perspective, during the 2018 Gubernatorial election, more than 15.7 million people were registered to vote, and more than 8.3 million actually voted.

    In an advisory released Friday, the Texas Secretary of State, David Whitley, announced the findings from its voter registration maintenance activities.

    The maintenance activity was done in accordance with federal and state law to ensure that only qualified voters — who must first and foremost be U.S. citizens — are registered to vote in Texas elections, per the Secretary of State.

    The Texas Secretary of State cannot investigate or prosecute illegal activity so he turned the information over to the Texas Attorney General’s Office. Voting without eligibility is a second-degree felony in Texas.

    “My Election Fraud Unit stands ready to investigate and prosecute crimes against the democratic process when needed,” wrote Attorney General Ken Paxton in a statement.

    And video:

    The usual suspects are skeptical (local news ctd):

    CIvil [sic] rights groups and Mexican-American lawmakers were instantly suspicious of the numbers released.

    “We need to see the evidence first because, typically, when elections go bad for the party in power, politicans [sic] will blame their electoral shortcomings on ‘voter fraud’,” Dallas State Representative and Chair of the Mexican American Legislative Caucus, Rafael Anchia, said after the news.

    But remember, voter fraud isn’t real and voter ID is repressive, or so we’re told.

    Once it becomes a well established fact that yes illegals do vote by the millions…the left will change their cry from they never vote to they should be allowed to vote and anyone questioning their “right” is a racist. Cities and counties and states will become illegal voting sanctuaries….wait and see

    …..your point?
    It doesn’t matter if they are illegal or green card holders…the article IS about ILLEGAL voting. Both do it and I’m willing to bet a far higher number of illegals do it than green card holders…

    My point is that this has nothing to do with “illegal aliens”, and dragging them into it just obfuscates the issue and conflates it with the completely separate issue of the border crisis. The issue is aliens voting; how they got here isn’t relevant. And Voter ID is of no use in stopping it, because they register and vote in their own names.
